Concurrent sessions provide a more in-depth perspective on specific topics. A poster session will present details about instruments or techniques. Participants will learn about new techniques and proven approaches in a variety of outcomes assessment areas, including general education and major fields, as well as capstone experiences, civic engagement, ePortfolios, first-year experience, faculty development, and student development, each of which has its own track throughout the schedule. Several sessions are designed for beginners and others are for the more experienced practitioner.
